Workplace Safety Professionals Invited to DEI Summit
The American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) opened registration on December 1 for a free daylong summit on diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) in the occupational safety and health profession. The online event on January 26 is open to workplace safety and health professionals across all industries. Virtual seats are limited and are available on a first come, first served basis.
The DEI Summit will include sessions and discussions that make the connection between DEI concepts and workplace safety. Presenters and attendees will examine the current state of DEI in the industry, generating ideas on how to remove barriers and build inclusive cultures to help the safety profession create safer workplaces.
Participants will collaborate on the DEI issues facing the industry today and hear from knowledgeable presenters who will discuss how DEI directly impacts workplace safety and health. Attendees will earn continuing education units to help maintain a range of professional certifications.
ASSP is the world’s oldest professional safety organization with 36,000 members around the globe who are committed to principles of fairness, respect and equitable opportunities for all.
ASSP works to foster a dynamic culture that values the diversity of its staff, global membership and the entire profession, aiming to accelerate that progress through educational opportunities and events. Differences of race, ethnicity, class, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, nationality, ability and education should not only be accepted but widely celebrated.
